Buddhagraph Spaceship lands 11/11 at the Velvet Lounge

Though Buddahgraph Spaceship's sound certainly can feel astral at times, don't be fooled--the band's strong funk sensibility keeps them firmly planted on earth. With tasty basslines, ethereal synths, and infectious grooves, the VA-based group manages to create hip-swinging funk with a prog-y twist. Catch them live at the Velvet Lounge 11/11 with NAH. and Woodgrove, and be sure to tune them in below.-Olivia Sisinni





Sun-Drenched Harmonies Shine Through on SMILE's New Release

The Austin music community is rife with ironic and self-serious bands, and SMILE is certainly not one of them. This six-piece power pop group, fronted by Jack Miles, can certainly light up the room with their sunny demeanor and chilled optimisitic vibes.  Blending elements of soul with purist Beatles-esque melodies, the group released a sun-drenched single "I Dunno" to generate interest in their soon-to-be-released new album.  Crooner vocals float over doo-wop inspired harmonies to create an atmosphere of love and postivity. While there is a strand of jam band DNA in SMILE, their music is overhwelmingly and unabashedly an homage to 60's artists like the Beach Boys and Harry Nilsson.

Prowler EP/Beer Release Show at Ortlieb's Oct. 8

Twisted transmissions from an alien planet, Prowler invades Ortlieb’s this evening. The band cultivates an intoxicating blend of oddball rock and funk; a satisfyingly strange, soul stew riding the space boogie. Tonight, the crew celebrates their collaboration with Highway Manor Brewing Co., “Funky Prowler” (a dry Irish stout), with a bottle release show. A free glass of Funky Prowler comes with your admission, while bottles of the brew will also include their new EP Hand Disease. With a new EP Good Knight, Sweet Dreams freshly released on cassette, the enchanting psych pop-rock of The Fantastic Imagination emerge from a mysterious magical territory, while the kaleidoscope jams of Hueman Group and the comic styling of Greg Trout fill out this slate. Ortlieb’s, 847 N. 3rd St., 8pm, $10, 21+ - Michael Colavita

Nuf Said releases video for "Rise"

Doesn't it suck that summer is over? For many it means returning to the daily grind, and for others who couldn't afford a vacation... continuing it, but with no sunny days, warmth or beach getaways as consolations. It's enough to drive someone crazy, or at least induce crazy dreams. That's exactly what neofunk Nuf Said's new video for "Rise" seems to narrate. Vividly animated by Miguel Rueda, the video tells a trippy story of a woman, lead singer Ioanna Vintu, dreaming of herself and others, including members of the band, going insane over the repetitive absurdity of their daily lives. The video culminates with Vintu and a friend playing cards in a cafe with an alien they previously hit with their car  The trippy visuals are perfectly accompanied by the track, whose syncopated drum pattern, eerie vocals and disjointed instrumental parts fit right in, and re-emphasize the themes of the video. — Henry Solotaroff-Webber
